In the course of a possible IPO of Sibur, it makes sense to offer investors a “significant stake” starting from 10%. This was stated in an interview with RBC by the head of the company Dmitry Konov.
“All the time when hypothetically it (IPO. – RBK) discussed, we would like to have a significant package size [на бирже]to get into the ratings and have sufficient liquidity, – he said. “These are important factors for investors, and we are going to take them into account.”
According to Konov, Sibur’s shareholders and management have always seen the Moscow Exchange as a key and, possibly, the only place for placement.
But, according to him, with regard to specifics, especially with regard to who will sell shares, if there is an IPO, then it is “definitely premature to talk about it”.
In the summer of 2021, the largest shareholder and chairman of the board of directors of Sibur Leonid Mikhelson (owns 30.6%) spokethat the IPO may take place next year, after the merger of the company with the Tatar group TAIF.
